What You Can Expect At This Month’s Checkup

Dec 22, 2010 No Comments by

It will probably be business pretty much as usual at this month’s checkup. As you end your second trimester, you can expect your practitioner to check the following, though there may be variations, depending on your particular needs and on your practitioner’s style of practice:

  • Weight and blood pressure

  • Urine, for sugar and protein

  • Fetal heartbeat

  • Height of fundus ( top of  uterus)

  • Size of uterus and position of fetus, by external palpation (feeling from the outside)

  • Hands and feet for swelling, and legs for varicose veins

  • Symptoms you may have been experiencing, especially unusual ones

  • Questions or problems you want to discuss – have a list ready
